Poodle

Pounder

Pounder
This little man will need a special home, with someone who understands and has the patience for old dogs. He is a 15 year old schnoodle, with a very sweet disposition, but some mental weaknesses due to old age. His vision and hearing are also failing at this point. He was originally brought in to Annie's Orphans after his owner was stricken with Alzheimer's.

Oscar

Oscar
A pure-bred poodle, Oscar is one affectionate and happy 8 month old! He is a miniature and can be registered, if desired. Oscar is super with other dogs and with kids. He is up-to-date on vaccinations, not yet house-trained and in the range of 15 lbs at this time.

Simon

Simon
Simon is back. This little man was adopted out in 2011, but has some behavioral problems that will require patience and love. You see, Simon came from a hoarding background. He is now learning a lot about life and freedom and, while the 3 other dogs that arrived with Simon from the same hoarding situation have adapted quite well to their new loving homes, it looks like Simon needs more time. He would like a home with structure and lots of positive attention. He is young, at just over a year old, and seems happiest in the presence of other dogs.

Pierre

Pierre
Pierre just came to us from a hoarding situation and so much wants to find his new home! His coat had to be shaved down, but looks as if it's going to come in thick and beautiful. He is good-natured and loving, full of personality and very desirous of affection. He will need structure and individualized attention/training. Pierre is under 3 years old.

Nini

Nini
This precious little one is a happy, personable, enthusiastic being, despite her difficulties up to now. Nini (formerly labeled Theresa) is truly ready for some sweetness in life, having been seized from a hoarding situation along with several others who found their way to Annie's Orphans. Like the other dogs, she was malnourished and so matted that her coat had to be shaved down. She was also treated for bilateral ear infection. It's believed that Nini was kept crated for much of her life which, with poor nutritional status, contributed to little muscle mass. Upon arrival, she used her rear, right leg very little and seemed unable to support much weight on it. The professional belief was that she had patellar subluxation. However, with a few weeks of good nutrition and increased ability to exercise, she has made a remarkable turnaround. She is now exhibiting boundless energy and is using all fours smoothly with very little favoring noticed, and that being sporadic. We are looking for the perfect lifetime companion(s) for Nini. She is attentive and loves people and enjoys being given love and attention. She also likes dogs, but is a dominant girl with a high play need and is food-protective with other dogs (probably a result of having to vie for meals). A home without small children is being sought, since Nini weighs less than 7 pounds and has a delicate frame. She is believed to be 1 1/2 years old.

Creamer

Creamer
Creamer came to Annie's Orphans along with 4 other poodle mixes who had been raised in and rescued from a hoarding environment. She is one cute girl, full of life and eager to play with any mix of adults, kids and dogs. She is around 7 or 8 pounds, solid white and has a sturdy, doxie build. Creamer is 3 years old.

Bliss

Bliss
Bliss is a darling, knowing exactly how to find a way into your heart! She literally smiles and wags her ears in happy greeting to see you, and she blinks coquettishly when she wants something from you. She is so full of joy, despite a difficult life up to now. She came from a hoarding environment, where it is believed she was caged with other dogs the majority of the time. When she arrived, she had callouses on her feet, was malnourished and was clipped down because of her matted condition. She is currently being fostered and is experiencing all the things of life that she was earlier deprived of...a soft place to sleep, good food, toys and lots of affection. She has absolutely blossomed, with playful energy exuding from her! Bliss likes everyone -- including kids and all sizes of dogs -- and is willing to experiment. She now LOVES many things that frightened her before -- baths, stairs, car-rides, having her face touched -- and has learned to do things that were before foreign, such as walking on a leash, fetching and playing with toys. She is reliably crate-trained and has responded extremely well to house-training, with a strictly enforced schedule of being taken out (instead of a doggie-door). She doesn't yet know how to tell you she needs to go out; so her person has to determine the timing, but she is prompt on voice-command to do her business. She has also mastered "sit" and is getting better and better with "place, down, stay, come." Bliss has mixed energy, engaging full-on in play, but loving long periods of time "bliss"fully lying in a lap watching old "DogTown" episodes! This girl is small, at just over 6 lbs. She will be happiest in a home with at least one other dog, preferably her size. We would also like to see her in a home without small children, since her build is quite delicate.
